liar and a whiner on twitter. up 21 points, the state is donald trump's to lose. bush knows it and so does trump. >> let me tell you. he's not going anywhere. >> reporter: trump takes the stage here in just about half an house, and right now this room is just about half full. new hampshire is a fiercely independent state. it is one that is known to surprise, and although donald trump is up by a lot here, i will leave with you this, lester.
early on sunday told me that they were going to go see john kasich. >> all right. katy tur, thanks. let's go back to marco rubio. he's brushing off broad criticism that have saturday debate performance when he was called out for repeating the same talking point about president obama four times in the span of a few minutes. i joined him on the trail here in new hampshire this morning where he acknowledges relative success in iowa has opened him up for attack here. what's it like to have a big fat target on your back? don't you feel that what i >> it's part of the process. when you have a target it means you're doing something well. >> hi, how are you. >> reporter: could marco rubio's debate moment change all that? for the past two days it's been hard to miss. senator, we're sitting in a diner and on tv they are talking about you. >> let's dispel once and for all with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. let's dispel with the fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing snow repeated the same thing four times. >> i'll say it again. barack obama is trying to change america and he's doing damage to this country with those changes.
none of the things that has happened are accidents. obamacare was not an accident. dodd/frank is not an accident. >> reporter: but in repeating it over and over again it played to this notion that your critics have, some of your opponents, that you are a bit contrived, that you're rehearsed. >> that's silly, and people understand when they are running for office are going to say whatever they need to say. chris christie has a very liberal record, right? he supported gun control. he supported planned parenthood and wrote them a personal check. he endorsed. sonia sotomayor so if you're a candidate you don't want to talk about that. you want to figure out something else so that's what they will do and the media is always looking for something new and interesting to cover. for voters, 9 republican voters agree with what i'm saying. >> reporter: marco robot, to see a headline that you checked. >> that's just part of the pros semnoz doesn't bother you? was it your finest performance? >> in our website we raised more money in the first hour that have debate than all the other debates. >> reporter: governors who are your opponents talk about the
charge of something as opposed to, you know, being on the legislative side as a senator. what do you respond? what's your response? >> that they have zero experience on foreign policy, none. jeb bush has no foreign policy experience. >> reporter: how deep is your foreign policy? >> more than any of them, member of the intelligence committee for five years and going through some of the most sensitive information this government has. i have more foreign policy and national security experience than everybody else on that debate stage the other night combined. >> reporter: your third place showing in iowa, strong third place, has put a lot of expectations on you in terms of going forward here. what does that mean in terms of what happens in new hampshire? what is your bar? >> every state is different. you have donald trump that's consistently been in first place now since june or july. he's the clear front-runner. we'll do well here. we have a good team here. when it's all said and done and the delegates are counted up we'll have more than half of them and we'll the nominee of that i remain 100% convinced >> reporter: conversation with marco rubio over a cup of coffee this morning. let's turn now to chuck todd,
moderator of "meet the press." chuck, you've got bill clinton on the attack, trump getting personal with voters, rubio's debate performance. are we seeing anything late in the game that's dramatically shifting the dynamic? >> reporter: i think what's amazing is how jumbled everything is on the republican side, and new hampshire is no longer going to serve of as the state we thought it would. we thought it was going to be the state that would winnow this republican field. i think now because of the rubio debate performance, even if he does still finish second, his opponents all believe he has a glass jaw and want another crack at him in south carolina.
